CONGRATS!

An Australian couple thought they'd won a dream vacation when they were revealed as the "lucky" winners of a contest they'd entered online. It turns out the competition, from bogus Canada-based tour company AusCan Tours, was effectively an application to be drug mules.

Other than that how was their trip?

Did the application require any essay answers?

Drug mules ? Are steroids everywhere ?

It was just an honest mistake, the people at AusCan Tours just got confused about which contest the couple won. The couple with the real complaint is the couple that won the contest for an all expense-paid trip to Canada including lodging, new luggage and $7 million in crystal meth. That other couple is going to be real angry when they unpack their new luggage and find they've been short-changed.

What exactly is the problem here?
